about. larry, back to you. >>> all right, many thanks to bob pisani. now, it looks like more and more like obama care is failing so badly that a bailout is already in the works for the nation's biggest health insurance companies. and that's because of what many are calling the perfect storm. not enough young people enrolling, too many older and sicker people signing up, also there are too many errors in the reporting back end of the health care.gov website. and today, they admitted to the appallingly big error rate. and 65% oppose a rescue for the health insurance industry. you know what, folks. one big bank bailout five yearers ago more than enough, thanks very much. here is independent senior policy analyst hadley heath and with us democratic strategist tracy sefl, lenwood brooks, policy director for public notice and cnbc contributor james pethokoukis of the american enterprise institute. good evening. heather, let me -- let me begin with you. what is up with this? what are they calling it? a corridor. they're calling it a corridor of assistance for the insurance companies. it soun

what do you see as the difference between how the bush administration and the obama administration approach the war on terror. >> right. , i mean, i think first of all it's great to be with you here on c-span and booktv. the bush with administration, i don't want to understate how atrocious i think that period was in american foreign policy. it really was like murder incorporated. the destruction of iraq, the creation of the cia black sites, the idea that the geneva convention was -- [inaudible] the abu ghraib torture, using guantanamo, you could go on and on in characterizing it. so i don't want to get into a thing about is obama worse than bush. i covered those wars, i know what happened. under president obama i think what we have is someone who has sort of rebranded some of the more egregious aspects of the bush-cheney counterterror apparatus and i think has convinced himself that they're waging a smarter war. so they're relying on the drones much more than the bush administration did, using small team of coovert operators to conduct either kill or capture, and because guantanam
right now. >> as they take budget off the table temporarily, what is obama doing as his domestic priorities? >> he has to devote all of his attention into righting the healthcare ship. this is his legacy-defining item. the enrollment numbers are looking pretty good but that is in the front end. enrollment is a lot different than actually getting the 7 million people that they need signed up and having purchased health care. they are focusing big on colleges, on getting the word out to be able to get the young uninsured signed up to balance out that risk pool. >> i am not in that risk pool. if they are going punt on entitlements and taxes, which they're going to do, they will not do it next year either, are they? >> i am starting to believe that none of that can happen meaning structural changes to entitlements until we have another big election or some kind of big economic shock that forces these lawmakers to come together. the house is a big part of the problem but the senate is becoming a big part of the problem as well. this goes back to politics and the fact that individual l

was a communist, this man. he was a communist. >> i would make the argument that we have a great injustice right now in the country with an ever-increasing size of government that's taking over and controlling people's lives and obama care is front and center of that. >> yes! he just compared fighting the health care law to fighting aparthe apartheid. >>> a freedom fighter, a radical, a disrupter of the highest order. his birth name means pulling branches of a tree and pull he did. president mandela not only freed a nation, he reminded the world of our common humanity. he put the good of the south african people, all south africans, above all else. over the course of his 27 years in prison, mandela wisely used his time to prepare, to plan and to embrace both forgiveness and reconciliation. he learned to let go of hatred for other people, recognizing that one of the true evils of apartheid is how it turned people against one another. in the first press conference, 1990, mandela was himself moved by the broader change that had begun to take place in his absence. >> it's a totally different south a
for obama there saying next year we will have some sort of bipartisan plan on voting rights. i took a step back. are we sure it's going to be bipartisan? are we sure there will be meaningful bipartisan plan. everything i have seen tells me there may be a plan next year. i'm hard pressed to see where it's bipartisan. >> we are saying an eternally hopeful, optimistic president who knows full well that whoever, and especially he's for it, is going to be impossible to get age done. the republicans have made it clear on any issue from the bucket, economy, jobs, health care, immigration you name it they will stand in the way of quote giving him a win. they don't want him to succeed. as we know, there have been two books wren that republicans collude before he was inaugurated to insure he would not be successful. so a president's job is to be hopeful and optimistic. that's what the president is being here, but that's not to say that he shouldn't try. because the president, while hopeful and optimistic. he's dealing with all these obstruction and impediments, he has to try, otherwise why be in the
of opportunities to push him on these big questions about obama care and other programs, right? >> you know, honestly when i've been interviewed i would rather somebody ask me hard questions because you can knock one out of the park when it's a fastball across the shoulder. if somebody is just lobbing things down in the dirt, which -pis what mathews essentially d, it makes both of them frankly look less than they should. >> have you ever watched obama get a tough question. one of our reporters asked him a tough question and he looked so outraged he couldn't talk. >> bret baier did the question with him and bret was pressing him, it was respectful, but doing the job of a real journalist and you could see obama bristoling with indignation, how dare him push me. >> maybe that's why the presidents are sort of going on lockdown now. talking about this earlier on the show they don't want the hard questions and therefore, having press conferences not even meeting with reporter mitt romney got testy with bret asking him tough questions. >> i'm going to start getting testy with you guys. obama has d
prerogative. very similar to what president obama is claiming, the right of the game to essentially stand above the law to reform the law to the kings views. i'm not saying that president obama is a monarch but that was the issue that gave the impetus to this clause, in my view. the language did not change very much. later, people like benjamin -- the dispensing power of the president. he wrote a very good paper about when the president can refuse to enforce laws. he basically said he could only be done -- they could only be done when there's intrusion upon executive power. by the way, that's was involved in the myers case we talked about, referred to earlier. or if it was clearly unconstitutional, and that second issue, established had to be very, very clear so the president does not exercise that authority. this is a i would respond. we don't have to hyperventilate to look any problem and take it is not about who the president it today or what he's trying to achieve. what is lacking from the other side is any notion of what the world will look like in a tripartite system if the presiden

obama and the man himself are looking at the same reality. we see the right wing attack and obstructing him relentlessly. he certainly sees it. we see the gall of economic justice as the big stakes of our time. and so does the president. and so does pope francis in rome. and this big goal, greater economic justice, is what's driving him. letting him weather from the right. he wants to help those most in need. but he also said this man who wanted to be a transformational president, great historic change, generally comes when one controls the government. times like the early new deal, the great society, and even the early months of the reagan presidency. is that what he's calling for? a big upset victory? next year's congressional elections. let's find out. robert gibbs is a political analyst and former press secretary under president obama. and david corn is an msnbc political analyst and washington bureau chief at mother jones. robert, you know better about him than most people. you've worked with him in tight situations. i hope you got to see our program last night. we had a huge audie

since she was >> right. >> what do you want to say to the president? >> we have to repeal obama care and read it. we have to have people now that it's all coming out we have to go back to the drawing table. >> i agree with you. >> i understand there are people in difficult situations who have no insurance. my solution from my point of view is go ahead and do some expansion of medicaid that's carefully programmed and also cut away all the extra stuff that doesn't need to be in medica medicaid tighten up the system and the ship. we also need to elect leaders who are going to -- >> keep their word. >> yeah. >> your daughter is a lovely girl. >> thank you. >> i got to spend time with her earlier. you have a great doctor. i wish you and your family the best. nobody should have to go through this. it's really sad and unnecessary. thank you very much for being with us. i hope they are watching in washington. thank you. >> thank you. >> up next tonight on "hannity." >> i have to ask you a question you may not like to answer. this could be tough. >> oh, all right. >> it's an essay question. t

obama care, which i'm sure that you cover a lot on your show, it causes the american people to not be comfortable with the leadership that we have right now. >> there's also a growing sense of isolation that we're seeing from this poll and when you were mentioning obama care and other domestic issues do you think the problems of a tough economy here at home is one reason why americans are fed up with the lack of real progress about solving our domestic challenges? is that why people are turning away from supporting major foreign policy move right now? simple i think that's part of it. i think the bigger thing is the disappointment and the deception on the part of this president as well as the administration and the democrat leaders, quite frankly, in washington, d.c. and particularly in one of the studies that was a harvard institute of politics study, also, that showed that even millenials have done a 180-degree flip-flop. a majority of millenials voted for president obama and now a majority of millenials do not like obama care and what's also scary is that they believe he
